    I was there. I didn't know her, but I felt like we were making a stand for bike commuters in the city.. That and to commemorate someone who was just a baby as far as bike commuters go and gone much too soon.

    When I drive to work I pass by where her ghost bike sits and my bike route home is nearby.. It could've been me or any other bikers I know. She was doing nothing wrong.. She was lit up with lights and she wound up back shot by a car; likely a drunk driver, but could've also been road rage that game of chicken some drivers play when they've hooked their inner child and forget that they are piloting a 4,000 pound projectile.

    There is even the possibility that it was a nut. I've come across people like that. Someone so jacked up on their own delusions that they feel that they know the rules and are willing to take action to make others comply to how the world works in their mind. No bikes in the street and bikes should be away on the sidewalk.. Willing to yell, threaten and buzz the cyclist to get the point across..

    Thanks for posting the photos. I wanted to go, but I was out of state.

    I ride past her ghost bike every day I bike to work.
